Analysis of manufacturing systems using simulations in terms of material flow cost accounting

Soemon Takakuwa, Run Zhao, Hikaru Ichimura
Pages: 44 - 51
Material flow cost accounting (MFCA), an environmental management accounting method, is adopted to reduce the amount of wastes that result from manufacturing activities. In this paper, MFCA is introduced to study the environmental impacts of production lot-size determination by structuring simulation...

New Ant Colony Optimization Algorithm for the Traveling Salesman Problem

Wei Gao
Pages: 44 - 55
As one suitable optimization method implementing computational intelligence, ant colony optimization (ACO) can be used to solve the traveling salesman problem (TSP). However, traditional ACO has many shortcomings, including slow convergence and low efficiency. By enlarging the ants' search space and...

Entropy Measures of Probabilistic Linguistic Term Sets

Hongbin Liu, Le Jiang, Zeshui Xu
Pages: 45 - 57
The probabilistic linguistic term sets (PLTSs) are powerful to deal with the hesitant linguistic situation in which each provided linguistic term has a probability. The PLTSs contain uncertainties caused by the linguistic terms and their probability information. In order to measure such uncertainties,...

A Method for Multi-attribute Decision Making Under Uncertainty Using Evidential Reasoning and Prospect Theory

Liuqian Jin, Xin Fang, Yang Xu
Pages: 48 - 62
In this paper, a method for multi-attribute decision making under uncertainty is proposed, the uncertainty is represented by certitude structure. In fact, there are both quantitative and qualitative attributes with different representation in multi-attribute decision making under uncertainty, so the...

On implicit Lagrangian twin support vector regression by Newton method

S. Balasundaram, Deepak Gupta
Pages: 50 - 64
In this work, an implicit Lagrangian for the dual twin support vector regression is proposed. Our formulation leads to determining non-parallel –insensitive down- and up- bound functions for the unknown regressor by constructing two unconstrained quadratic programming problems of smaller size,...

Team Situation Awareness Using Web-based Fuzzy Group Decision Support Systems

Jie Lu, Guangquan Zhang, Fengjie Wu
Pages: 50 - 59
Situation awareness (SA) is an important element to support responses and decision making to crisis problems. Decision making for a complex situation often needs a team to work cooperatively to get consensus awareness for the situation. Team SA is characterized including information sharing, opinion...

Bacterial Foraging Optimized Hybrid Fuzzy Precompensated PD Control of Two Link Rigid-Flexible Manipulator

Srinivasan Alavandar, Tushar Jain, M. J. Nigam
Pages: 51 - 59
Light-weight flexible arms will most likely constitute the next generation robots due to their large payload carrying capacities at high speeds and less power demand. Control problem of robots with flexible members is more complex compared to rigid robots due to vibrations during the motion. This paper...
